What therapies may be used?
The team at Pain West in Papillion rehabilitates the injured area while evaluating and incorporating Physical Therapy that may be needed for adjacent joints and muscles. Paying attention to the mechanics of your whole body is important because an injury in one area places stress on other muscles used to compensate for the injury.
Everyone on the team has extensive experience in many different therapeutic techniques, so they recommend treatment tailored to your unique rehabilitation needs. Your Physical Therapy plan may include one or more manual therapies such as myofascial release and massage, extension exercises, and a structured exercise program.
Do you take referrals from other facilities?
